Spring Color Blocking

Top: Target, Pants: River Island, Belt: Vintage, Bracelets: Asos, Gorjana Griffin, Charming Charlie & Lola Blue, Sunglasses: Heavenly Couture, Necklace: Charlotte Russe, Shoes: Charlotte Russe (also loving them in black), Bag: Dolce & Gabbana

For today's look I went with one of my favorite spring trends -- color blocking. I paired royal blue trousers with a bright coral top and added in a leopard bag for a pop of print. Color blocking is one of those trends that is perfect for almost any occasion because it can be easily dressed up or down. To make this look more office appropriate simply add in a black blazer and black pointed toed pumps.

The Perfect Fit

Top: Apt. 9 Kohls c/o, Pants: Kohls, Necklace: Nordstrom Rack, Earrings: H&M, Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe, Watch: Kessaris Quartz, Bracelet: Sole Society, Bag: Jennifer Lopez for Kohls (similar), Shoes: Charles David

As a stylist, I know that what goes under your clothes is just as important as what you're wearing on top. So when Kohl's reached out to me about doing a story on bras I was excited to share some of my knowledge. Being a bustier girl, I typically go for bras that minimize. No, that's not a typo. When I go to the bra department and ask to be pointed to the section with no padding the sales girls typically look at me like I'm crazy. Yes, I like thin bras with no padding and no push-up, and full disclosure, I'm even guilty of often times reaching for sports bras. So when I discovered the Maiden Form "Comfort Devotion" collection I was thrilled -- tissue thin, maximum coverage and of course, unbelievable comfort. I then used their measurement tool as a guide to help me find the perfect fit and now I'm so happy to kiss my sports bras goodbye! 

Do you have trouble finding good undergarments? 

Be sure to check back to see how I style more of my spring Kohl's looks! Thanks so much for visiting!

Happy Monday everyone!
This past weekend was Coachella weekend 1 and what a fun yet exhausting experience it was. We spent the days poolside trying to beat the heat, and the evenings under the stars dancing the night away. If you weren't able to follow the fun as I covered the parties Instagramming for @2bbebe, don't worry, I will be posting a full recap soon! Believe it or not, I'm going back this weekend for the actual festival and doing a fun collaboration that I'll be sharing with you guys really soon!

For today's look, I went with this beautiful blue polka dot dress. It was a much-needed change after all of the boho Coachella fashion I've been wearing lately. Slipping in to a ladylike look is definitely a great way to start the week!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

For today's look I mixed a few of my favorite Spring trends! Pastels, floral and color blocking. I paired a silky blouse with my structured Target skirt to create a fun and flirty look. I then added in a gold bow necklace with a matching bag, just for fun. Spring is one of my favorite times of year because I love all of the bright colors and patterns, I'm so happy that it's finally here!

Also, I'm so exciting to be virtually co-hosting a "Pajama Chic" event over on the Covet Fashion Ap! The competition goes live in the game tomorrow at 12pm so don't for get to submit your look!
